"americans have a right to be angry about it. the president is saying 'i will not tolerate this kind of behavior in any agency, but particularly the irs, given the power that it has and the reach that it has in all of our lives." meanwhile, lawmakers are calling for action. house speaker john boehner told reporters he wants to know who is going to jail for the scandal. as we know, the irs has been in trouble for partiality in investigating conservative groups. now it may be about to snoop on people like you. as it did with banks in switzerland, this government

the effective tax rate up, going through provisions and tax code that frankly do not make a lot of sense. the other thing that we need to do, coming back to this room, as democrats especially we need to keep this in mind, how do we get those results for less money in almost everything that we do? it is almost like a culture change. trying to move a culture of spending to a culture of thrift. it is hard for one committee to do that, and possible. even if you have a lot of people interested in this stuff. even if you work with omb it is hard to get that done. even just in the general accountability office across federal government. what we try to do is alleged the effectiveness of our committee by poll -- by partnering with all the above. again, i say this is a shared responsibility, all hands on that. would you talk a bit about how you think your position, how omb can be maybe a better facilitator, a better partner in leveraging the activities? >> sure. i think that there are a couple of things that omb is particularly well positioned to do. the first is to invest in a relationship based
are confused that they have to wait in line to get their tax groups, and i think some progressive groups were targeted as well. overwhelmingly the citizens united produced an onslot of social welfare groups applying for tax breaks, and they're on the conservative side. they went about it in a very stupid way but there will be push back, this is how the irs works. they use buzzwords they ferret out applications and send out lengthy questionnaires. >> michael: i'm about to talk about some of the things that have been obscured by all of these scandals which is immigration. it's a big part of president's--what he wanted out of his second term, and everything has happened since then. can he win on this by winning on immigration on the hill and make these things go away because they really don't touch him you know, the irs. >> i talked to mike mccurry who was in the press when clinton was in the white house. there was a finance scandal but then you had leon panetta, newt gringrich as speaker negotiating a balanced budget deal. governing went on despite the onslaught of campaign finance stories, and
's a broken promise. obamacare is raising taxes on the middle class. the supreme court made that clear. one little known tax in obamacare is a medical device tax. this is a tax on the middle class, because it will be passed directly to the consumers. pennsylvania has the fourth largest medical device industry in the nation. the medical device tax threatens innovators like a company in my district, that supports 600 good paying jobs. obamacare does not strengthen medicare. creates$716 billion and the independent advisory board which puts unelected bureaucrats between seniors and their doctors. folks are losing their health care plans, increasing the deficit and won't bring universal coverage. more than 30 million people will be uninsured in 10 years. the fact remains that three years later, president obama's health care law is a string of broken promises and damaging our families, seniors, hard-working americans and their health care and killing jobs and violating the first america rights of people of faith. it's a small wonder that some of the authors are calling it a train wreck. e america
concerned that right wing groups were being harassed, getting their applications for tax exempt status delayed, being forced to provide unusual information. the ig report also pointed out, this is big news. this kind of inappropriate screening by the irs officials was initiated within the irs and not because of any outside influence from the administration. but the key elements are there. the focus on groups called tea party and patriot. education of the public to make america a better place to live. that's in quote. issues such as taxes, government spending, and even criticism of how the government is being run. so now we have it. the president has it. the waiting game is over. it's time for action. and we're all looking right now at the white house to see what that action will be. chuck todd is chief white house correspondent and political director for nbc news. sam stein covers the white house for the huffington post. let's focus on the hard news right now. but i also want to focus on the reaction we expect from the president. to me, this is the big news here. all of these officials
improperly screened conservative groups applying for tax exempt status. it is inexcusable and americans have a right to be angry about it and i am angry about it. i will not tolerate this kind of behavior in any agency, but especially in the irs. so here is what we're going to do. first, we're going to hold the responsible parties accountable. today secretary lew took the first step by requesting and accepting the resignation of the acting commissioner of the irs because given the controversy surrounding the audit, it is important to institute new leadership that can help restore confidence going forward. second, we're going to put in place new safeguards to make sure this kind of behavior cannot happen again. third, we will work with congress as it performs its oversite role. and our administration has to make sure that we are working hand in hand with congress to get this thing fixed. congress, democrats and republicans, owe it to the american people to treat that authority with the responsibility it deserves in a way that doesn't mack of politics or partisan agendas because i think one th
of the $17 trillion and $100 trillion that's coming, and that's what's wrong. we are taxing the children of tomorrow who don't have any voice in this except for mine, yours and others who decide to stand for them. they don't have any voice in this. we are taxing them so we can have more on our plate now and that's what has got to stop. and stop with the debt ceiling that will probably come up for a vote this fall. which way will we go, mr. speaker? what will we do to ensure that the children of tomorrow don't have to pay for the bills of today? it will take courage. it will take, frankly, mr. speaker, more than this congress. we can't wait for washington to do this alone. we need the help of the people. and that's why i take to the floor tonight, ultimately, mr. speaker. getting the word out. know american families, once they know the truths, they will speak that truth to power and they will demand change and demand to live within their means again because that's what every american has done before. want the next to be better off. that's what americans today want, too. and i tell this to

in order to get parcel taxes and what have you. i feel really confident that the approach that we're taking is so much more thoughtful around all the things that we want to do for children across the city and how we can leverage everything that we've already put into it and how we can grow this and so i think, you know, we're going to need our, all of our organizations and all of our parents and all of our neighborhood associations and we certainly want to get business to think about this very differently. so we want them to be a part of this conversation also. and again so that this is something that will go out clean, it will go out without anybody raising money to oppose but instead will be, you know, raising money so that when it does go into the campaign it will be so that we can pass it with a very high support margin. so i'm really grateful that we're doing it and we're going in this direction. thank you. >> thank you. actually i had some more administrative questions in terms of the election for 2014 and maybe this is a question to the controller. so my first is, i know prop h i
